We were itching for our first brunch at Cypress Tavern the moment we decided to go for it on both Saturday and Sunday. Getting the restaurant off the ground was fast and furious so dinner naturally was a priority for training. With the chefs working double time on menus and getting ready for service, brunch came together in as organized a way as on-the-fly can get thanks to technology and a good deal of old fashioned face time. With menus set and plenty of feedback from the team thanks to patient chefs (more eggs please? more… everything, please?), we knew it was going to be good, but what would it taste and look like? We decided to make a video at this past Saturday’s first service to find out.
Brunch tables are the best.

Big thank you to Gio Gutierrez for shooting our footage, always there to jump in when his technology skills are needed. We hope you enjoy this first taste of what is going down during brunch at Cypress Tavern.
On the weekends, 18 Savory ($8-22) plates escalating in size offer guests flexibility to craft their brunch experience, whether it’s starting with oysters and the Lobster Omelet with fine herbs (15), or Bibb Lettuce Salad with heirloom tomato, radish, black olive, and creamy Meyer lemon dressing (8) and Eggs en Cocotte with spicy tomato, chickpeas, cilantro, scallion and grilled sourdough (14). Today’s Rotisserie (18) features a special spit-roasted protein, like lamb shoulder, served with roasted potatoes and Meyer lemon salsa verde. Extras (8) including thrice-cooked fries, breakfast sausage and wood grilled asparagus are there when you need them. Seven Sweet ($8-19) dishes delicately touch on all the brunch sweet spots like French Toast with fig compote, pistachio, and crème fraîche (12) and Buttermilk Pancakes with smoked Maldon salt, whipped butter and maple syrup (11). The Chocolate Pot de Crème is a silken stunner, served with toasty, sugared brioche cubes (12).

STAY TUNED FOR NEXT MONTH’S EVENT — TICKETS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON FOR OMG! ON AUGUST 13!
O Cinema Wynwood and Harry’s Pizzeria reunite to celebrate AMY, the new documentary chronicling the career and life of Amy Winehouse, for our OMG! Dinner & A Movie series on July 9. A once-in-a-generation talent, Winehouse captivated us with her unforgettable voice. A jazz artist in the truest sense, she sang about her experience and struggles with raw honesty. The film, directed by Asif Kapadia, features previously unheard tracks and archival footage of Amy in her element. We’ve been humming the soundtrack for weeks, and absolutely cannot wait to see this film!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. We’ve been doing a little reflecting as we welcome 2015 into the picture. Please enjoy Brand Manager Jessica Gross‘s beautiful portrait of the people that made 2014 a very special year for our company, including those who complete the genuine family… YOU. Cheers to a healthy, happy & genuine new year!
It’s hard to believe but final preparations are being made for the Michael’s Genuine® Pub to set sail from the New York City area in November. You’ve been on the ride with us, from the announcement there in March, to our happy hour to celebrate where it all first began, the Michael’s Genuine® Food & Drink bar in Miami’s Design District. Once it is open, we will continue to be closely involved to ensure all is running smoothly, visiting the ships on a regular basis to keep staff motivated and operations well-oiled with our partners at Royal Caribbean International, as we have done since 2011 with 150 Central Park’s Farm-to-Ship program. This time is special though, of course, as our brand sets sail for the first time on the brand new Quantum Class of ships. We will be onboard for training, traveling to Bremerhaven, Germany prior to the inaugural transatlantic crossing to further infuse genuine culture onboard. Through and through the process has been akin to opening one of our restaurants on land — from branding, restaurant design, art by Carl Myers, uniforms, and merchandise, to the menu, its design and paper spec, recipe development, and smallwares procurement. And of course, ramping up production for some craft beer close to our hearts to be onboard — Michael’s Genuine® Home Brew Classic American Ale and Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale from Back Forty Beer Company in Gadsden, Alabama.
Thanks to our partners at Royal Caribbean and Michael’s role as Quantum Experience Advisor for Culinary, today we take you behind the scenes with Chef and Ryan for Episode 2: Craft Brews at Sea, a voyage to discover how Michael’s Genuine Home Brew is made at its home away from home with BFBC Director of Operations Tripp Collins. You can also view Episode 1: Genuine Food and Drink Aboard Quantum Class here, featuring Michael and Royal Caribbean International Culinary Director Neal Gallagher as they preview what’s to come at the Michael’s Genuine Pub, including cameos by MGFD HQ chef de cuisine Niven Patel and sous chef Danny Ramirez!
Still thirsty for more Michael’s Genuine Home Brew? Tune into the shenanigans from Michael’s casual neighborhood joint Harry ‘s Pizzeria® as we prepare for our August 26 dinner with Terrapin Brewing Co. on this week’s Brew in Miami with Miami Herald Food Editor Evan Benn. Catch the new episode later this week on Miami.com and read about it in Saturday’s Tropical Life section of the Herald. Cheers!
